The rcmarkablo swordsmanship of
tho Tartars is proverbial. Once
when Bobo, tho cousin of tho great
mogul, was caught iu the rebellion,
his execntion was oidcred. tho most
skilful swordsman of the empire was
proATided for tho beheading, aud the
great mogul and his court assembled
to see it. For a second the keen Tar
tar bladj flashed in the sunlight and
then descended upon the bare neck of
Bobo, who stood upright to receive
the stroke. The sharp steel passed
through the vertebra), muscle and or
gans of the neck, but so swift was
the blow and so keen tho blade that
the head did jiot fall, but kept its ex
act position, and not a vital organ
was disturbed. In surprise the great
mogul exclaimed : t'What. Bobo, art
thou not beheaded?-'
"My lord, I am," replied Bobo, "but
so long as I keep my balance right
my head will not fall off." Tho groat
mogul was so pleased with tho deft
ness of the executioner that he ord
ered a bandage to bo tiod on and
Bobo speedily recovered. Ho after
ward became a loyal subject and was
made cashier of the empire, because,
as tho great mogul remarked, "he
knows thai if he keeps his balances
right his head will not come off." It
is one of those curious Fcraps of his
tory that aro often overlooked.

The Old, Old Story.
Why do wo hear so much about
dyspepsia? Simply because so many
pejple have it. Why aro so many
popple talking about their euro from
th'is dreadfnl disease? Simply be
cause they have been taking Brown's
Iron Bitters. Thus it is with Mrs.
Taylor of Lynchburg, Sumter Co.,
S.," C, who says, "I havo used
Brown's Iron Bitters for dyspepsia
with most favorable results. I believe
this medicino is all that is repre
sented." Dyspeptics, and sufferers
from neuralgia, weakness, etc,,
should try it.
